Godspeed Jan

My stepmother passed away about an hour ago. It’s not unexpected. She’s been fighting cancer for the last few months.

I supposed there are wicked stepmothers out there, that cliche must have started somewhere, but Jan wasn’t one of them. She always made me feel welcome. She brought me two brothers and gave me a little sister.

She took so many photographs. We were seen even when we thought we didn’t want to be.

She’s gone to join my father. They were a good match and she’s been waiting for this reunion. She’s at peace.
